Join us to help regenerate and green our urban areas with native plants which will support habitat for local wildlife and help maintain a healthy ecosystem.
We plan on planting 1,500 native plants and need your help. To volunteer to plant a tree, please register on the Planet Ark website.
This year’s event will take place in two areas at Dalgal Way, Forest Lodge, adjacent to the Tramsheds.
The day is a great opportunity for the community to learn about land restoration and to participate in an event that will benefit the local area and environment. There will also be a free sausage and vegetarian sizzle.
Volunteers will need to bring warm clothes, rain and/or sun protection and closed in shoes. Drinking water will be provided. All City of Sydney events are plastic free so please bring your reusable cup or water bottle.
We will provide gloves, tools and all equipment for planting and a free BBQ with vegetarian options!
About National Tree Day
National Tree Day is an annual Australia-wide tree planting event run by Planet Ark which has been operating since 1996. The event encourages the community to participate in local tree planting activities resulting in over a million trees being planted across Australia each year.
Since 2010 Planet Ark has collaborated with the City of Sydney to undertake community planting days in bush restoration areas within the local government area. The events focus on planting shrubs and groundcovers and have encouraged over 5,032 people to participate and plant over 34,740 native trees, shrubs and grasses across the City.
